NETWORKING and the modern home
Are You Covered?
While we are all familiar with the concept of WiFi, many people don't realize that upgrading to the convenience of a smart home will almost always require an accompanying upgrade of the home WiFi system. To not only get the most out of your smart home, but to ensure security and the reliable operation of all smart home devices and components, experts recommend upgrading to a managed network with hard wired access points.
Why Do I Need A Hard Wired WiFi Network?
Anyone who has lived in anything larger than the smallest apartments will be familiar with ‘WiFi drop-out’ – areas in the home that, due to their distance from the router or obstacles in between, do not reliably receive a signal. In these cases, you might use a network adapter or wireless bridges to make sure your devices connect to the network. Due to the complexity of a smart home network, security needs, and the fact that many smart devices will simply not pair well with them, these are not viable solutions. Then there are the ‘mesh networks’ – kits sold with two or more access points to increase coverage. While these are certainly a step up from DIY network boosting, they exhibit a noticeable loss in network speed, many do not support dual band networks – and they aren’t cheap. The best smart home WiFi solution for those desiring a blazing fast, reliable and secure network is a managed hard wired WiFi network.
